Born in Toronto - Neil Young From The Archives For Sense of Place

November 6 2013 - Our Sense of Place: Toronto continues with one from Neil Young who was born in the city. It was recorded in Nashville in 2005 upon the release of the Prairie Wind album.
We’ll talk today about the two events that affected the writing of the songs and the recording of the album: the death of Neil’s father and his recovery from an aneurysm. At the time Neil was in Nashville to play songs from the album live at The Ryman Auditorium for a Jonathan Demme film.
